In the third book of this
sweet Regency Cornwall series, one young man must search for truth among the
debris of multiple shipwrecks on his newly inherited property.
When Liam Twethewey inherits the ancient Wyndcliff Hall in Pevlyn, Cornwall, he sets a goal of fulfilling his late great-uncle’s dream of opening a china clay pit on the estate’s moorland. When he arrives, however, a mysterious shipwreck on his property—along with even more mysterious survivors—puts his plans on hold.
Evelyn Bray has lived in Pevlyn her entire life. After her grandfather’s fall from fortune, he humbled himself and accepted the position of steward at Wyndcliff Hall. Evelyn’s mother, embarrassed by the reduction of wealth and status, left Pevlyn in search of a better life for them both, but in spite of her promise, never returns. Evelyn is left to navigate an uncertain path with an even more uncertain future.
When the mysteries surrounding the shipwreck survivors intensify, Liam and Evelyn are thrown together as they attempt to untangle a web of deceit and secrets. But as they separate the truths from the lies, they quickly learn that their surroundings—and the people in it—are not as they seem. Liam and Evelyn are each tested, and as a romance buds between them, they must decide if their love is strong enough to overcome their growing differences.
Sarah E. Ladd has completed the third novel in her Cornwall series. I have enjoyed all three books and couldn't wait to dive into this one. The Light at Wyndcliff is a delightful story for the imagination and senses. Ladd does a wonderful job at inviting readers to the cliffs of Cornwall even if you have never been there. The romance was a typical romance with a predictable ending. The plot moved at a nice pace. I kept flipping through the pages and couldn't wait for the story to continue. The mystery elements were nice. I had a good time trying to figure out who was really behind all the shipwrecks and looting along the coast. Ladd definitely knows how to capture her audience's attention and keep it as the story flies by. Overall, I believe fans of Julie Klassen, Carolyn Miller, and Ladd's other works will enjoy this novel. I sure did.
I received a complimentary copy of The Light at Wyndcliff by Sarah E. Ladd from Thomas Nelson Publishers, but the opinions stated are all my own.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
